Atl. Tucuman - River Plate
Atletico Tucuman remain in one of the Copa Libertadores spots following a 2-1 away win at Banfield last week, with the goals coming from Leandro Diaz and Gervasio Nunez. After a three-game winless streak in early February (one draw, two losses), El Decano have managed to take seven points from the last nine available in league action to accumulate 39 points in total. Ricardo Zielinski’s men have produced a remarkable home campaign so far with five victories, four draws and only a single defeat.River Plate are still residing outside of the Copa Libertadores places despite a convincing 4-2 home win over Newell’s Old Boys last weekend. That means they have now booked five victories and two draws in the league since their 3-1 home defeat to Patronato in late January. El Millonario have increased their tally to 36 points in the league and they have grabbed eight points from the last 12 available away from Estadio Monumental. The team drew 1-1 at Peruvian side Alianza Lima in a Copa Libertadores group game in midweek.Two of the best sides in the league will clash this weekend. Atletico Tucuman are usually strong at home and River Plate have generally been very confident lately. I expect a draw.Pick: X
